Broadway Voices: Gary Mauer and Elizabeth Southard

Garner Performing Arts Center
742 W. Garner Road
Dec. 13, 7:30 p.m.
Tickets $35

The sparks were real when Gary Mauer and Elizabeth Southard took the Broadway stage as the Phantom and Christine in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera. Their electricity on stage was genuine.

The husband and wife met while working on a cruise ship, playing a pair of newlyweds in New York Honeymoon. They later married.

Mauer has played both the Phantom and Raoul opposite Southard and they were cast together as Gaylord Ravenal and Magnolia Hawks in Harold Prince’s Showboat.

Mauer and Southard will bring their chemistry to the Garner Performing Arts Center for a one-night only presentation of “Broadway Bliss.” The concert kicks off the fifth annual Broadway Voices series.
